Designed for chemistry and society classes, author Kimberley Waldron blends the central ideas of chemistry into stories that are relevant and familiar to non-science majors—from evaluating nutrition labels to understanding global warming and climate change. Award-winning journalist Michelle Nijhuis argues that the best science writers “put new results in context, synthesizing and analyzing what came before, what might come next, and why you should care.” Waldron does just this—by weaving the chemistry in the context of riveting stories, she masterfully captures the attention of her readers to help them gain a deep and lasting scientific literacy.
